The cloud computing boom has brought many benefits to businesses regarding increased productivity and easier accessibility to corporate online systems. Unfortunately, it has also introduced some new security concerns and an increase in the number of data breaches that occur each year.
The main reason for this is that cloud services make it much easier to access and share data from outside the organization. In a traditional computing model, data breaches are most commonly caused by stolen hardware or a malicious attack on company systems. Data breaches from the cloud may simply be caused by a careless employee sharing files with the wrong person.
